The heart and soul of the Chavurah, for the past 40 years, is the Shabbat Study Program. These Saturday morning sessions attract adults who enjoy learning about the values of Judaism and Jewish tradition based on the text of the Torah and Midrash.
Rabbi Golub leads spirited lectures and discussions of Talmudic and Midrashic passages that integrate current events, as well as readings and books on modern Jewish life by Jewish rabbis, philosophers and scholars.
These sessions also provide exceptional forums for community discussion of divergent views on social issues that challenge Jewish life and the State of Israel.
We meet in the homes of Chavurah members on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am to Noon, from October through June. Please consider joining us any Saturday. Sessions begin with a brunch and socializing. We only ask that you RSVP if you plan to attend. Check for date, times and locations by emailing our President via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chavurat Aytz Chayim offers a special opportunity to join a caring community of diverse families and individuals who share a positive sense of Jewish identity and meaning in their daily lives.
What relevance do tradition and scholarly commentary on the Torah have for us as we ponder questions of personal identity and responsibility in a complex, secular world ? These might include such issues as racial profiling, feminism, gay marriage, abortion, stem cell research, or the BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanction) Movement and its vilifying of Israel.
Include yourself in the discussion of these important topics by becoming a Chavurah member.
We offer a unique blend of tradition with a humanistic outlook. The joy of group singing and the sense of family and community characterize the special mood of the services. Check for correct dates and times by contacting the President via email@example.com.
